2:12 am
the first thanksgiving. frank and i were indians and the pilgrims eating maize. that's what we had. >> i'll tell you, the things that bring back childhood memories in terms of cereal, captain crunch and crisp. those were our two favorites. and then in the car going on long trips, my parents always had juicy fruit gum. the smell of juicy fruit always reminds me of being a kid. >> they make it taste like this and i'll have some. matthew? >> who is she? >> i don't know. >> we have a woman in our skype box and we need to -- >> who is she? okay. we just want to make sure we know what's going on here. >> all right. are there any other foods in life that you eat that bring back a childhood memory. >> other than juicy fruit gum and cereal? is this a setup? >> no. >> no, there is nothing. >> for me, it's crabs. >> why don't we just keep the theme going.
2:13 am
why don't we keep the ridiculous theme going. >> what's better than crabs? >> let's just keep that sound bite separate. keep it for later use. >> i have so many amazing memories of summer time eating crabs in maryland. my dad would catch them and cook them and we would spend all day long -- >> he did he steam them? >> esteemed them, yeah. so any time you want to make me happy, you call up costas in baltimore and get me some crabs. >> remember 60th birthday. >> yes. >> it's time for -- >> your friday funny! all right. save it. a woman is looking in the mirror. she starts to pull at her face and try to flatten her stomach. she turns to her husband and says, i'm so old. i'm so fat. her husband just goes about his business and ignores her. i look just horrible. i'm not the woman you married. still no response.
2:14 am
her husband just stares and then starts to walk away. so she screams after him, hello! i really need a compliment now. her husband finally stops, turns around and thinks about it for a minute and says, well, do you have good eyesight. i like it. >> let me tell you what -- >> it's the delivery. >> they're getting better and better. it's time for our today's johnson baby now since we celebrate new moms and adorable additions to their new families. first up is matthew. he was born on october 9th in cleveland, ohio. parents matthew and jenna say he loves bath time. he says the birth of baby matty is every dream they ever had come true. >> next is otto su dal lonkani. he was born on september 12th. in san francisco. his middle name means sea otter?
2:15 am
in korean because his mom is korean. when she said she was going to name her son otto, he thought she said otter so it stuck. >> next is ella sophia mikovich, born august 28th. weighing six pounds, seven ounces. her mom calls her mommy's little shopper because she loves going on walks to the mall in the stroller. >> and our last is zack edward niziol. he was born august 24th. no, he's not happy, mommy. in atlanta, georgia. his parents jason and caroline say their son won't stop making crazy facial expressions. and that is called gas. and dad has his fingers crossed that zack grows up to be an avid golfer, just like his daddy. >> congratulations to all our babies. if you want a chance to have your baby appear in our johnson baby of the week, go to our website. >> we need your help. you go to halloween parties and all that sort of thing. we want to see the costumes you've been wearing to the hollywood parties. you're going to get bonus points if you dressed up like us. >> really?

2:17 am
2:18 am
it's time for "the other view" and we're trying to get to the bottom of what men are thinking when it comes to relationships. and who better to ask than matthew hussy. it would be weird if it wasn't him. >> hi. >> thank you for having me. >> are you ready? >> i'm ready. >> all right. our first question is from laura. she says, i've had a guy best friend for ten years. i got married in 2011 and divorced in 2013. since my separation, my best friend has been doing things he's never done before like buying me dinner, asking me about love. is it a good idea to turn your best friend into your soul mate and if so, how do i go about
2:19 am
telling him? i'm scared to death of losing him for good. >> there are three points to make. the first one is soul mates or best friends make great soul mates. >> right. >> so you got great foundation there. secondly, when it comes to how to tell him, all you got -- you don't have to jump the guy. it doesn't have to be that risky. can you say, listen, i feel more than just a friend to you right now. how do you feel? are you feeling anything different? >> you've been there for me during this difficult time for me in my life. >> we are friends for four years. >> do you feel the same way? and let him see where he comes from. thirdly, whenever anyone says i'm afraid of losing them as a friend, i never buy it. >> why? >> firstly, because they're not really -- they don't fear losing someone as a friend, they fear rejection. >> and if someone is truly a friend, can you ever lose them? >> no. and especially guys. think about it. the guy can't even remember what he had for breakfast this
2:20 am
morning. he's not going to remember her hitting on him a year from now. >> i think it changes the dynamic. if you change the game, the guy looks at you differently. >> it only changes the dynamic if she gets awkward after that encounter. people stay awkward instead of going back to the way they were. >> let's hear what elizabeth has. why does my husband look at other women when he's with me? i'm 12 years younger than him and i'm pretty attractive. what is he doing? >> she's funny. >> and modest, too. >> my question to begin with is well do you ever find other guys attractive? ever? >> the answer is, yes. >> of course the answer is yes. no one ever finds anyone else attractive. >> that's ridiculous to even expect that. >> correct. so she set up a rule that immediately he can't follow. he can't win at. so now if the question is if he does it in front of me, then -- >> and it hurts my feelings. >> then she needs to set up a better rule for the relationship. it's not you can't find anyone else attractive. you have to make me feel secure
2:21 am
in this relationship. >> there is looking and then there is looking. >> there is glancing and then up and down. some guys can make you feel -- >> that's a point that someone needs to make. when i'm with you, here's how it makes me feel when you do that. here's what i would love for you to do because it makes me feel special. when do you that, i don't feel special. >> frank can't stand when i hug other men. i was a hugger before i met you, i'll be a hugger until the day i die. >> how did he react to that? >> like i care. i love him dearly. but don't tell me not to hug when i'm a hugger. it's my natural inclination. sorry. all right. this is courtney. she says i've been in a five-year relationship with a guy. he is 30. i'm 27. we've been living together for about three years now and even did a cross country move together. now he wants to take a break and live apart. it seems like he's terrified of commitment. but i am not sure how to move on.
2:22 am
completely? >> completely. >> does that make any sense? >> cut it off. she, right now -- >> we have no time. >> tell him. >> if she is saying that he actually wants a break, i'm going assume right now that means a break from her, not just a break from living together. she has to change the way she is looking at the situation. i always say to people, don't value how much you like someone value the investment they give you. if she's saying well i really like him -- >> we don't know what that means. >> here's what it means. men and women many the mistake of saying i really like this guy so i'm going to try really hard. instead of saying this guy is investing and me and giving to me, therefore i like him. the danger with the first one is as soon as you like a guy --
2:23 am
>> let's go on to the next one. we don't have any time. all right! we really have to go! we don't know what that meant. >> all right. let's move on. just in time for halloween, we're all decked out. >> what is that with her? >> creepy. we're going to find out. and he'. she zigs and he zags. if two types of people can live as one, shouldn't there be scents that do the same? that's why we designed two scents that alternate daily. new glade plugins scented oils customizables, inspired by the best feelings in the world. glade. s.c. johnson. a family company. was voted product of the year, finish quantum better homes and garden's best new dishwasher detergent, and it has the good housekeeping seal. giving it more honors than ever before. take the finish shine challenge

2:30 am
2:31 am
we're back on this friday asking the age-old question to spank or not to spank. a new study suggests children who are spanked early in life can develop aggression and behavior problems. that's what the study says. >> yeah, but not everyone agrees. take a look. >> i certainly was and i deserved it when i got spanked.
2:32 am
>> i was never spanked as a child. i don't believe in spanking. i never spanked my own children. >> let's put it this way, i think i was spanked a couple times and after that i learned the lesson quickly. >> occasionally i was spanked as a child. i think it had the use at the time. i'm not sure it was appropriate all the time. >> no. it didn't work for my kids. and it just -- it's not effective at all. >> i think in rare cases acting is better than words. and in certain situations, one good crack across the butt probably speaks 1,000 words. >> all righty then. michael mckenzie. >> it is a generational thing. >> michael is a researcher on that study. and dr. iva horn is a pediatrician. welcome. >> welcome. >> tell us a little bit about this study. what is it showing exactly? >> the three big take homes to the study, the first thing that surprised a lot of people is this wide belief that spanking is rare. no one spanks their kids
2:33 am
anymore. we find that spanking rates have not dropped off. half the parents were spanking kids at age 5, at least once a week in the past month. >> we should define what spanking is. it's very different from beating your child. >> people have their own definition of what they include in that category. we were talking about a hand on the buttocks. it shows later on the kids get agresive. >> yeah, we found children that experienced high levels of spanking defined as more than, you know, two or more times a week showed lower verbal capacity at age 9 and more aggression. >> dr. horn, do you think there are certain behaviors that require a parent or parent should think about spanking their child? >> i don't think there is a behavior that requires a parent to consider spanking. i don't want parents -- if i say to parents absolutely if you tell me you're spanking then we have a problem. then they won't come to me when there is really an issue. >> right. >> as a pediatrician, i want them to have that conversation to talk about this thing that is
2:34 am
underlying why they feel like they have to spank their child. therein lies the problem and the concern. what's going on with this parent and the parent-child dynamic that the parent feels like they need to spank their child. >> this is about frequency though. if you are doing it every day, there is an issue. if you do it every now and then when there's a big problem, that's different. >> a lot of parents are using this not as a backup tool but as their go-to method. this is what they use and rely on exclusively. >> but more and more we're living in a world where we're letting television raise our children or video games raise our children, technology. we have become a post human society. we're more comfortable with machines than human beings. is that part of the problem? kids see so much aggressiveness in the media? i certainly had as a child growing up. could that be part of what is going on here? >> i think what we're really talking about here is the aggression that kids see with their parents and their interaction with parents. and then that leading to aggressive behavior in the future.
2:35 am
>> one of you said that you didn't think that time-outs work either. so what do you do with a small child? >> like don't he'd the tide. >> this is where families dismiss. they see the other academics who don't get what it's like in the trenches with the kids. and they dismiss it. people don't interpret what happened to them as abuse. so when people are say this is abuse, they tune it out. the reality is that no one spends a lot of time work with a kid say can you reason or negotiate. >> it's impossible. >> what should do you? >> sometimes you need to remove the child from the situation. and sometimes you need to remove yourself as a parent from the situation. identify when that needs to occur. parents need time out. sometimes we need a time out. and sometimes the kids do need a time out so they can take a breath and recognize what their behavior is and what the reaction is. when kids are really young, they don't -- they get that disconnect. it doesn't click for them quite yet. >> what they need is love. a lot, a lot, a lot of love. they need discipline too.
